Access to science

This accessible and practical teaching resource focuses on access to the science curriculum for students with learning difficulties. Within an inclusive framework of participation and achievement for all, the core of the book provides support and ideas for the effective planning and implementation of well-differentiated science-focused activities.

The book offers activities that are designed to motivate and challenge students with diverse individual needs, guidance on differentiation in early years and across all key stages, suggestions for teaching early developmental skills through sensory science, defined learning outcomes that demonstrate progression in curriculum content and experience; assessment and recording opportunities, and guidance on how to incorporate science in a cross-curricular way.

Written by authors who have direct experience in the field, this book will provide practical help to all those working with students with learning difficulties in early years settings and in mainstream and special schools.
